Here are your Pens Points for this Wednesday morning...
The Penguins clashed with the New York Rangers last night at Madison Square Garden. Going in without Kris Letang and Sidney Crosby proved to be a challenge early on, as the Pens fell behind 2-0. They managed to tie the game at two goals apiece going into the final period, and needed OT to settle the score. However, the Penguins couldn’t complete the comeback this time. [Recap]
